How About Starting Over

Encyclopedia of empathy, sometimes
you choose the wrong entry to
define the smaller motivations;
thesaurus of thorns,
synonyms often wards of poorly chosen
but you are
my penultimate
second only to
pencils and words with
which they part.

Hearken back to
inspiration, disheartened
textbook romance,
rediscover the weirdness of
its earliest dances,
its hair blonde like
yours was in college, and leave the
politics out of
cruising down the
Autobahn of carnal knowledge into
sunsets and

How about
starting over,
writing off bad denouements because darling,

you’re the only debutante
for me.
